that deal absolutely, but, remember, we're complicit in part of what happened. obama when he took george michel's resignation and basically moved dennis ross out of the white house, he doesn't put a new program on the table. and when america walks away from this peace process or an effort to bring the two sides together and really lay out a plan, violence kicks up. so we have a bit of complicity and you you are seeing right now not a strategic presidency from obama but a reactive presidency and that doesn't bode well for this. >> do you agree with that? if you're not moving forward you're moving backwards on the peace process? >> i think you plod forward or stay -- i'm not sure it's unraveling. i still think the amazing thing about all of the changes in the middle east is that you still have a commitment of all the key players to the peace process. >> i know. it's not as bad as w where he just did nothing thp thanks my opinion. thank you both. i want to see peace over there but i want to have a long term problem of iran dealt with. we have a lighter note coming up who do a great impressi
